lol..been using a flashlight. I mounted the apex display on the outside of the cabinet so I rarely open the controller side. The other side houses my test equip, dry food, and ATO jug so I go in there at least once a day.
I have a couple of those puck lights in my gun safe. They work pretty well, so I guess I need to get a couple for the tank stand now!

I put the light lower so I don't have anymore light spill.
I ordered an Avast ATO pump because the tom aqua lifter couldn't do the job!

for those using the ghost skimmer.. how are you using the drain hole for excess waste? Since it sits lower in the tank, attaching a line it will have to go down & then up.. so it seems like that would not work correctly?

Yea. I just uncapped it and have it "aimed" into the sump. I have never let it get filled enough to overflow. I just figured if it ever ran out of there, it would just return to where it came from anyway...

Not an LFS, but he runs out of his house I believe "Ultimate Corals" in Jackson. He should have some I would think.

or Aquarium Care Center on 35

You should stop in there! There is not one coral in my tank from any other seller. He even gave me my largest piece of LR.
Amazing selection and he can get any coral your heart desires if he does not have it.
If you want to stop over there sometime on a weekend, lmk and I'll meet you there!
